Need Input ASAP!!
« on: May 14, 2006, 09:38:13 pm »

I've found my first deal doing Assignment of Contract and I really need some pointers all the way to how to fill out the contracts and where to sign, etc.

I'm looking to make a $3K fee off of a $115K sale.


Who pays the closing costs - buyer OR seller?
Who pays the fees at the title company? Buyer?
Does anyone have any sample contracts already filled out that I can go by?

If you are assigniing your contract then your buyer is responsible for closing, unless your contract stated otherwise.

If a title company is closing this deal, their "fee's" are the closing cost..someone correct me if i'm wrong

The closing costs should be dictated in the contract.  In general seller pays title and title insurance, each side pays for closing.  However, the contract is what will tell you.  You can take a look at Steve Cook's contract with is free to pull down at www.flippinghomes.com
